    Perfect shoyu broth! They also have a Kirin Frozen Draft machine. Perfect for a scorching day.

    Absolutely love!! I've been a few times but always go after 5:30 so you can try the yakitori! Get adventurous! I had chicken hearts and chicken gizzards here for the first time ever! So delicious!

    It was my first time here. It is better to call first and make reservations, could be a long wait! Ramen was definitely good! Try the grilled meat(any)... All good

    Beef tongue is the best!

    Ramen comes in a bowl so big you could drown in it! Also, two words: fried oysters. Put them in your face right now!

    Jason McLeod, chef of Craft & Commerce, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Miso ramen. Read more

    Wow - step into a little piece of Tokyo when eating at this insanely delicious Yakatori & Ramen house. Try the beef tongue, the Eel wrapped in omelet and the Shoyu Ramen. I can't get enough.

    The food is amazing, allow me to say this first. But their service is horrendous. Granted, I will continue to eat here, I just have vastly lowered expectations of service. The wait staff, favors men

    Awesome yakitori, best in South SD! Try the exotic stuff like beef tongue, chicken vein, and gizzards, grilled with teriyaki sauce - trust me, you will NOT be disappointed.

    Impeccably grilled meat on sticks, bowls of steaming ramen, plus the beer and sake make this Hillcrest transplant many a chefs' favorite late-night hangout. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Awesome Ramen! And the fried shumai was phenomenal. Definitely adding this place to the favourites list.

    Sign in on the list by the door if you don't have a reservation. The Nagoya ramen broth is chronic, though I could have done w/o the bamboo shoots. I wish they made pork buns!! I'd be 100% sold if so.

    This place gets really crowded, so try to make reservations ahead of time (even if it's when you're walking out the door)!

    If paying the bill w/multiple cards, be sure to double check name on receipts to be signed. Had friend's card charged twice on a visit and it happened again on a different occasion but we caught it.
